La Dea need to get back on track after seeing their run of six consecutive Serie A victories ended in spectacular fashion by a 4-1 home defeat to Roma.

Gian Piero Gasperini has lost Rafael Toloi and Joakim Maehle to injury, joining long-term absentee Robin Gosens, so Hans Hateboer and Davide Zappacosta take the wing-back roles.

Malinovskyi and Miranchuk support Duvan Zapata upfront, a curious decision seeing as Miranchuk has been linked with a January move to Genoa.

Genoa are coming off four Serie A defeats in a row and the arrival of new coach Andriy Shevchenko has done little to improve the situation.

Zinho Vanheusden has joined Felipe Caicedo, Nikola Maksimovic, Mohamed Fares and Nicolò Rovella on the treatment table.

Mattia Destro is at least recovered and ready to start, with Caleb Ekuban getting the nod over Goran Pandev.

Genoa also announced this evening that a member of staff tested positive for COVID-19.

Genoa: Sirigu; Bani, Vasquez, Criscito; Biraschi, Sturaro, Badelj, Portanova, Cambiaso; Ekuban, Destro

Atalanta: Sportiello; Djimsiti, Demiral, Palomino; Hateboer, Koopmeiners, Freuler, Zappacosta; Miranchuk; Malinovskyi, Duvan Zapata
